Golf has long been thought of a man’s sport
Certainly, the cliché of the old male retiree who spends his time chipping away on hole 14 at the club still exists. If your only association with golf came from what you watched on national television, you would get the impression that only men played (though to be fair, all women’s sports receive little to no television exposure).
But the truth of the matter is that over the past few decades, women have been hitting the links in increasing numbers. Dynamic players such as Michelle Wie, Annika Sorenstam and Cristie Kerr have influenced many women across the country to pick up a driver. Sportswear companies are for the first time ever producing women’s golf shoes in mass even.
What the women who are new to the game have discovered in the past years, however, is something men have known all along: Golf is not as easy as it looks. There’s a learning curve to be sure, and it can a long, long time before you reach the level of just being adequate. Thankfully, there are a bevy of instructional books that can be phenomenally helpful towards improving your golf game. And many of these books have been marketed specifically to women. Here are a few of the best.
